On Christmas Day, the Washington Post published an AP photo taken at a Christmas party in Port-au-Prince, Haiti at the Presidential Palace. The two young girls pictured were dressed in Santa-themed hats and pinafores over what were likely their Sunday best dresses. Neither child smiled. Both seemed wary and anxious. Their shoulders were hunched. One of them had raised eyebrows as if she was hopeful, but her arms were crossed defensively across her chest. The other girl, lips slightly parted, looked as if she was ready to turn and run at the slighest provocation. merry christmas. . .
